Making it look easy

Next Swim: 
   Sunday July 6th @ 1pm

Last Swim:
   Saturday July 5th @ 1pm
      Water Temp:  57- (a tad bit colder in many spots)
      Waves:  rippled surface with moderate current from south
      Clarity:  Crystal Clear
      Crew:  Diablo, Kahuna, Gumdrop, Neo, Andy, Robb, Erin, Capt'n
      Suit / Skin:  6 / 2
      Pitsch Count:  6

The water temp measured 57 just a few steps into the water this afternoon.  Upon walking the plank the Kru found the water to be slightly more chilly just a few steps further out.  This didn't deter Diablo and Neo this afternoon from logging their 1+ mile swim skin.  A very impressive accomplishment considering that they didn't even consider putting on a wetsuit once the official water temp reading was announced....nor did they even contemplate turning back at our traditional 200 meter checkpoint.

Sunday's swim is scheduled for 1pm at Klode.  The weather forecast looks great...but I certainly know better than to try and forecast the water temp.
